After You're Accepted
You’re not done with the college admissions process after you apply. From checking your admissions status, to applying for financial aid, to registering for orientation and housing, there is still much to be done before college starts in the fall.
Create your online portal to accept your admission
This is very important. Many times, you cannot register, apply for housing, pay fees and tuition, or purchase parking passes without it.
Check your financial aid and follow up with the school for extra documentation they may need.
Your college is working on financial aid award letters for many students. Finalizing your details early can prevent delays.
Register for summer orientation
Orientation spaces fill fast. Easly sessions allow more flexibility with course selection. Some colleges will give you a waiver for the orientation fee; contact the department of orientation at your college for more information.
Apply for housing if you are living on campus
Most schools will have you fill out a form to match you with a roommate you are compatible with. There is also a housing deposit required. Housing options are limited, so secure your housing well in advance.
Send final transcripts after you graduate from high school
You will need to submit an updated transcript from your high school after your graduation date.
Send any college transcripts or AP/IB credits before you arrive at orientation
If you have college or university course work, an official transcript will be needed from each college or university you attend.
Double check to see if you need to take the TSI assessment before you attend your orientation
The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) assessment is the state-approved placement test. To satisfy TSI and course prerequisite requirements, you must meet or exceed the minimum passing standards.
